Holy guacamole - February is over! Thank goodness, that means spring is almost here which means warm weather which means summer is almost here which means - ah, you guys get the hit. February was pretty awesome minus the four feet of snow that got dumped onto CT early in the month. I enjoyed it the four days off from work from it though :) Enough snow talk,  let's jump into my favorites this month!
 Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in 110 Ivory
Between loads of friends and beauty vloggers recommending this, I felt I needed to try this. I really like it because it feels extremely light (dare I say naked? ;P) yet has pretty good coverage. I wouldn't say full but maybe medium coverage. I usually use this with my Beauty Blender (a little damp) and set with the Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder and have my face last all day.

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Heavy Duty Concealer
They aren't kidding when they say this is heavy duty. The teensiest tiniest dab of this will cover all your imperfections plus conceal your under eye circles and you might even have some left over. A little goes a very long way with this stuff!

Can you tell I'm broadening my beauty horizons? I never used to wear lipstick/gloss as much as I do now. My three favorite lip products were:
  • Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose Kiss - I searched high and low for this after seeing it in Ingrid's (missglamorazzi on YouTube) favorites video from a few months ago. I finally spotted it at Wal*Mart and had to grab it. This is definitely one of the most moisturizing balms I've ever used. 
  • Revlon Lipgloss in Peach Petal - The most perfect peachy-nude lipgloss ever. I've seen so many beauty guru's use this and had to try it. It doesn't disappoint although it's not super pigmented like I hoped it would be. Still, I like wearing it by itself or layering it over a nude lip. 
  • Wet 'N Wild Pinkerbell - For whatever reason, the drugstores around me are always sold out of this! I finally found it at 5 Below of all places and bought it. This is also an almost exact dupe for MAC Viva Glam Nicki.

Wet 'N Wild Pearlescent Pink
Apparently, I was on a dupe kick this month and didn't even realize it. This blush is a dupe for NARS Deep Throat. I'm IN LOVE with this blush and I don't normally even wear blush. Super pigmented yet when you put it on, it seems to give just the right amount of a "flushed" look to your skin.

Revlon PhotoReady Bronzed & Chic
I don't know how many times I've picked this up, fought with myself, put it down and promised I'd get it next time, rinse, repeat. Then RiteAid's Buy One Revlon/Get on 1/2 came. Perfect time to get this! I had it in and my hand and dropped it, shattering the entire palette. I was getting the feeling it wasn't meant to be until a few weeks ago, I just committed and bought it. Is this the best bronzer ever made? Eh, probably not. But I really loved this in February. I used all the bronzers combined instead of isolating them.

Technically, this isn't a fair February Favorite because I got these at the end of the month but screw it, I wanted to brag share: I bought NERD LACQUERS!

NerdLacquer Holy Grail, Carbon Allotrope, Event Horizon, Cold & Calculating

NerdLacquer Nebula, Entirely Unlike Tea, Outed By A Probot
I can't wait to absolutely go swatch crazy with these babies.

Vaseline Healthy Hand & Nail Conditioning Lotion
Without this, I think my hands would've cracked right off my wrists from this harsh and dry New England weather. I apply at night and by morning, my hands are soft and my nails strangely look healthier (probably in my head).

Victoria's Secret Dream Angels Heavenly
For those who don't remember, I received this as a Christmas present from one of my best friends and have been rockin' it like crazy this month! It smells like a yummy chocolate cinnamon mix.

L'Oreal Paris Go 360* Clean Deep Facial Cleanser
Let me start by saying I never wash my face with anything besides soap and water - until I tried this. I've always been kind of a weirdo about trying this stuff. My face rarely breaks out with my soap/water method so why fix something if it's not broken, right? I don't know what compelled me to try this but I'm so happy I did! See the blue scrubbing pad in the middle? That pops off and you can use it to lather and scrub the cleanser in. I have noticed that my face is significantly softer using this!

Favorite Songs:
Sure Be Cool If You Did - Blake Shelton
Downtown - Lady Antebellum

Favorite Vlogger/Bloggers:
Nicole Guerriero - I'm gushing but she has become my favorite vlogger of all time. Her make-up tutorials are always super easy to follow!

Hope you all had an amazing February and can't wait to see what March brings! What were some of your favorites?
